On August 28th, Collingwood based team “Cycling for the Cure” led by sisters Kate and Ali Pettersen hit the road for the annual Ride to Conquer Cancer in support of the Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation. A total of 15 cyclists set out from Squire John’s to complete 20 km, 50 km, and 100 km routes, and most importantly, raised a remarkable $26,268! Lee Pettersen was a Blue Mountain resident and nine-year Ride veteran who lived 8.5 wonderful years after her cancer diagnosis thanks to clinical trials at Princess Margaret. Kate and Ali will forever be thankful for the team of doctors and researchers at PMCC that afforded them more laughs, experiences, and more time with their incredible mom.
